Exhibition curated by Greg Eghigian, Ph.D. Student in the History of Science.

In celebration of the 300th anniversary of the publication of Isaac Newton's "Philosophiae Naturalis principia mathematica," this exhibition displays early editions of the Principia in Latin, English, and French, along with other related works from the collection. In this text, commonly called the "Principia," Newton presented his theory of universal gravitation and the principles of mechanics. It is considered one of the landmark texts in the history of science.
